This is a guest post introducing Western herbs, as well as a couple of Chinese herbs, and their pro-fertility benefits. (Thursday I’ll post again about spices.)

In case you are faced with infertility, there are a lot of things that you could do in order to increase your chances of conceiving, such as IUI and IVF. Still these are usually quite expensive and there are different kinds of side effects. This is why you might be looking for something more natural.

Female fertility treatments

Red Clover

This is one of the most popular remedies in case of infertility. It has become so popular because it is very rich in vitamins, magnesium and calcium. The best thing about it is that it helps to nourish the uterus and in the same time it relaxes the nervous system so that conception will become easier. You should have it in the form of a tea on a daily basis.

Raspberry Leaf

Infertility could be caused by hormonal imbalance, and so it is a good idea to have some raspberry leaf because it is rich in calcium and so it is able to restore the hormonal balance. It could also be a good idea to make a tea of a mixture of red clover and raspberry leaf.

Lady’s Mantle

This herb can be used to build the lining of the uterus and it can also help to regulate menstruation. The best solution is to drink it as a tincture on a daily basis.

False Unicorn root

Just as some of the previously mentioned herbs, this one could also be used in order to restore the hormonal balance, but this one does more: it stimulates the ovaries thus it promotes ovulation.

Stinging Nettle

This herb is rich in minerals and chlorophyll and so it can help with regulating the hormones of the body. In the same time it can also regulate menstruation and ovulation. Just as the other herbs, it should be drunk in the form of a tea daily.

Male fertility treatments


This is one of the herbs that have been used for a long period of time to treat infertility in case of men. It is said that it improves the chances of conception through improving the concentration and motility of sperm.

Panax Ginseng

The herb is also known as Korean or Chinese ginseng, and it is an important part of the traditional Chinese medicine. It is said to improve the length and firmness of the erection and it increases the sperm count, testosterone levels and sperm motility.


Are these herbs safe?

Although they are known to be natural remedies, these kinds of treatments should also be handled with care. This is because just like any other kind of treatment they cause changes in the body. In case they are used with other herbs, drugs or medications, they might have some unwanted effects.

Even more, there are some herbs that are known to have caused some serious side effects, such as heart attack, seizures and strokes. This is why it is so important to talk to your doctor before you start using any kind of treatment, natural or not.
